Saw a pair of these at Daffy's on 33rd and 6th.
I think they were about $50. Size 9 which was a half size too big for me or I would have picked them up.

I'm assuming that it's a decent shoe. Any opinions?

for $50 it's a decent buy....the Loake for Ben Sherman line is a HUGE ripoff at full price. A good example are the Loake "Brighton" loafers I have (costs $120-$160 depending on source) that are also made for Ben Sherman (being the classic mod shoe that it is) and retails for $350(!!!) with the only difference being they added some snazzy coloring details that are cool but not worth a $200 premium.

Half size too big is totally wearable...just add a foam insole and you'd be good to go.
